[Precise SRU][PULL] fix XPS12 Cypress PS/2 trackpad

Bug reference:

	Cypress Trackpad mis-detected as "PS/2 Cypress Trackpad" on XPS 12


Due to a firmware change in the Cypress PS/2 trackpad, the driver fails
to properly detect the trackpad in the Dell XPS12 and possibly other models,
leaving the trackpad dysfunctional.

This patch -- a trivial backport from upstream -- fixes the detection glitch
in the driver.  The patch was cherry-picked into Raring.


The patch was deployed as SAUCE in Raring some weeks ago, as well as in the
Sputnik kernel PPA for Q and P.  It has been verified to fix the problem in
all three.

[Regression Potential]

Low potential for regression: The change will only affect Cypress PS/2
trackpads (the problem and fix occur only after the trackpad has already been
detected as a Cypress), and it has been reasonably widely tested on Cypress
pads with the older firmware via the Sputnik PPA.
